This program is designed to write a raw disk image to a removable device or backup a removable device to a raw image file. It is very useful for embedded development, namely Arm development projects (Android, Ubuntu on Arm, etc). Anyone is free to branch and modify this program. Patches are always welcome.
Warning: Issues have been reported when using to write to USB Floppy drives (and occasionally other USB devices, although very rare). It is highly recommended that before an image is written to a device, the user should do a Read to a temporary file first. If this fails, please report the failure along with your system information (file a new bug, NOT a review).
Please do not use the reviews area for questions or bugs, as I have no way of responding to them.

I have used this Program to install Kali Linux from a USB-Stick. I thought it would work like YUMI (It would only add the input of the Kali.iso), but it has formatted my hole drive. I know how to work with a Computer, but a little warning Screen wouldn't be bad!!!
Would be nice to have it set the partition disk to the size of the img file. A+ though.
Very useful program. Some of the earlier comments are trolling. I used it for cloning SD cards. Raspberry pi was working perfectly every time. Raspi B Rev 2, and Raspi II. There is no reason for anyone to do mistakes and blame it on W32DI
do NOT use this software! it is able to destroy hardware irretrievable. for more information: bugs.launchpad.net/win32-image-writer/+bug/1086520
